  1. Funny you all say that. I am due for a colonoscopy. LMAO!!! mk
  2. Well they finally got back to me once they found the test results. Funny, after we talked he agrees that I am on the right track with my problem. I don't have cancer or infection as best they can tell. Will meet with one more Doctor to do a few final tests to 100% rule those out and further define what is going on. LOL!!! Finally movement in the right direction. MK
  3. I like it!!!! When I get some time LMAO!!! I am going to remake my 4x12 cab. The lower got some water damage so I'm thinking just make a new one. LOL!! Low on the priority list right now. mk
  4. So the old fart in me is questioning everything. I think these doctors are all wrong? I honestly think this is Pseudo-gout. The more I think about this and what has gone on, it makes more sense to me. I have gained weight, not lost. I have not had elevated white blood cell counts, no fever or heat in the affected area. The tenderness is not there, just sharp pains when moved wrong or pressure on the area (standing, walking) The MRI shows a crystaline type of fluid in my hip obscuring x-ray imaging. Prednisone relieves the symptoms. I have had trauma to the area. I have elevated rheumatoid levels. I am getting older. All of these are consIstent with Pseudo-gout. I know I am not an MD but something about this does not compute. LOL!! Maybe I am grasping at straws to help me cope? Hopefully soon I will finally have a definitive answer?
  5. man that sucks. Hopefully it will go away? There has to be something that will get rid of it? MK
  6. I agree with you all. It appears that no matter where anyone is, the health care systems are in dire need of restructure for the patients. I just went to get some blood work done today. They could not do it because the order does not have all of the info required from the Doctor. What a bunch of crap. Now I have to wait until Monday to get the correct info which puts off results by another 2 or 3 days. DAMN!!! mk
  7. Thank you Carl, Yes I am very pissed off. I'm getting ready to go get some testing today. I personally don't think that this is cancer. I have been gaining weight and my white blood count is well within norms? Not typical for it to be a cancer. Again I'm not an MD so we will see what is going to happen. It is just frustrating as hell to be in this position. I have fought way too many battles with my health over the years and found ways to overcome with the help of caring people and now the BIG Finger of " FUCK YOU MIKE " is upon me again. I'm running on fumes and I don't like it. Mike
  8. Thank you Scott Yes Wes, this definitely sucks HUGE fuzzy donkey balls.
  9. Well guys, looks like my startup may be going to stop soon. I saw a new specialist about my Hip again today. Something I have been complaining about since Jan of 2018. As you all know everyone continued with "not your hip it is your back" Well, 1.5 years later my hip is still a problem and we may be a little late on the fix. I will know more in about a week. It appears that I have a very very high chance that this is bone cancer. Damn I am completely drained and pissed off that no one listened to me. This may be could have been diagnosed a long time ago. Best case scenario, is this is a major bone infection which is at this time about as bad as a cancer would most likely be according to the specialist. The specialist I saw today is referring me to another more specialized doctor than he is. I'm not sure how much more my body can take? So I may be selling everything very soon as this is going to get expensive quick no matter what the outcome. Fuck me, I'm not ready for this shit. Thanks for listening. Mike
  10. Yep and the Golden years are about giving it all to the Doctors.. LOL!!
  11. Well another Dr day. Let's see Dr: "you are still alive!" me: That's good? Dr: "So what brings you in today?" me: "still have pain in back and hip with other problems that continue to get worse" Dr: "So your blood work shows an elevation in this." Maybe you need to see a Rheumatologist? Me: "And what will they find that is related to my back and hip?" Dr: " well I don't know but it is most likely related." "By the way you should get a colonoscopy. We are trying to get 100% cooperation from our elderly patients." Me: "and what the hell does that have to do with my back or hip?" Dr: "nothing, I'm just saying you need to get one soon. Also it is time for your complete physical" Have a nice day sir" "let me know if there is anything else we can do for you?" Me: I leave bewildered?? WTF is happening to our health professions? So now I will have a scotch to ease my pain. ((((((( Shaking my cage ))))))) Have a great day all!!! MK
  12. MiKro

    need 3D CAD files

    Old post Bostosh.
  13. I managed to get the top inlay done today for the Jag style bass. Ash inlay 0.400". now to flip and thickness all to 0.350", then chamber that to match the back. Will use a ceruse finish t0 bring out the grain in black. MK
  14. Thank you sir. I will try and do just that. I'm trying to understand how to scale it for other media types besides just a PC format.. I think I found some good tuts on that. Now to understand em scaling vs pixel. LOL!!! mk
  15. I am redoing my website. OMG, Been a long time since i did this ( I know I'm old ). Now trying to use responsive types, with css3 and html5. Damn makes my head spin. Anyone have any good pointers for these or good tutorials? mk
  16. I understand, and I will say CAM for 5 axis is not for the weary. LOL!!!
  17. A 5 axis would make it easy. Assuming there is enough space in Z to allow for the size. I envy you having access to that. Problematic for the hobby people though. 5 Axis software is very expensive as well as the machine is also more expensive. I agree it is really 2.5 axis, most people do not really understand that. Since it will only do approximately 89* of any side and even that, the last 46* begins to become even more oblique as it gets closer to 89* There is a way to combat this limitation though. Using a true ball bur type end mill (see attached photo) and hand coding the Gcode, one could get around the edge so as to eliminate the oblique angles imposed by the machine. one would still have to flip it for the other side and do the same again to get a good transition.
  18. As close as I can get to finish Carl. There are always a few areas that are not accessible for a 3 axis machine other than a straight downward cut ( think about the actual body profile cutout ) . That being said if the machine is accurate then only a light sanding is required on 95% of the body to remove witness lines. There will always be some areas that will require more detail sanding. Yes I do as much of the radii as possible that a 3 axis machine can access from one or both sides, (Top / Bottom ) Good question. MK
  19. Another day!! Much better than the past few. LOL!! Today I started advertising the 3d Cad work for other CNC Guitar Builders. While my Etsy store is slow to get going. ( generic stuff there ) The 3D CAD Service seems to be a good start. I have already had great response and interest in this. Hopefully it will continue to pan out? I am currently redoing all of Doug West / Parable Guitars models to help him stream line his work load. Let the machine do more of the work and less hand sanding for him. Finished this one up today. Have a Great Week Everyone. MK
  20. Here is a peek at some of my work for others. By permission from Doug at Parable Guitars. I present the redone model of the Paragon. check out Parable Guitars at Parable Guitars. More of Parable models to be done soon. If you need assistance in a 3d model please contact us at Rio Customs MK
  21. What a fucked up day. I did manage to fix my dumb thumbing on the cnc though yesterday. Had to re-tram the damn thing. 0.5 is not 0.05 no matter which direction you choose. LOL!! Shit breaks when you do that. LOL!! I did make it to Woodcraft today ( needed a new band saw blade). They had some beautiful Mahogany. 20" wide. Only problem it's 4/4" Damn. Oh well, aching aside I survived the day. Have a Great week Everyone!! MK
  22. Stubborn old coyotes still show up at times when least expected.
  23. OKAY MOM!!! I will try and not be that GRUMPY OLD BEAST!! My apologies to those affected. MK
